I hope you enjoy my insights into the dietary lifestyle that has changed my life forever. It took me quite awhile to put my thoughts into words, so I hope that you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it, and that you are able to take way some inspiration from my tireless efforts...

I'll keep this short, I'm a male in his 30's and I'll admit I'm a little "overweight." Decided to pick up this book from the recommendation of my PT. I had no idea what a Paleo Diet consist of and this book is great for beginners. I read about the history of the Paleo diet and why it's even called the Paleo diet or "cave-man diet" in the first place. The author also provided a few Paleo recipes to help you get started and after a quick search on Google I found hundreds more! If you are curious about this I recommend picking up this book!

I have been on this for two weeks and my energy level is through the roof allready. I have not had this kind of energy since my twenties, and I am 56 now, and I also Dropped a few pounds already. I feel confident recommending this book, it explains from a personal viewpoint how the Paleo Diet works.

One of the lessons I got from this book is: following a 'diet' is not just about following some rules very strictly.
Instead it's finding what's comfortable/doable for you within a specific framework (here: Paleo Diet) and making it a part of your life.
It's that framework that the author explorers in an entertaining, easy-to-digest way (whilst substantiating the do's and don'ts).
To make it complete, the author includes some easy, ready-to-cook recipes.
It's for everybody who want to know more about the Paleo Diet without being overwhelmed by tiresome theories.

This book is a good introduction to the paleo way of life. After reading it I've become a big supporter of the Paleo diet concept and the idea that we need to eat the traditional foods to be healthy.

So stop eating store bought food that comes in boxes, bottles, cans, etc., and get back to a natural and healthy diet. As the author states in the book "If I could hunt it... or pick it from the ground or from a tree and eat it, then it's something worth having in my diet." I find this simple idea to be very helpful to remind me what is good to add to my diet and what is not.

The author includes an extensive list of Plaeo friendly foods and beverages and a second list of foods that we should avoid. Animal proteins (lean meats & fish), veggies, fruits, berries and nuts, all these are good choices to add to your diet.

He also includes some relatively easy and tasty recipes to get you up and running with Paleo. The recipes are very down to earth.

For anyone new to the Paleo diet, Roger Thatt's book is a perfect starting place.

If you want to lose weight, if you want to attain optimal energy and health, this book will work wonders. Highly recommended.

I've read through most of the book and the author has a very unique way of writing that actually keep you intrigued - it's like reading a novel, but it's facts. From the introduction all the way through to the recipes, you will be very excited about this diet.

With that said, it's still a non-fiction book that has a bunch of great paleo diet recipes. I haven't tried any of the recipes, but from looking at them they sound delicious.

The introduction, history, and the author's point of view is not only interesting, but funny. You learn a lot in the first few chapters of the book. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book when the author was talking about going to the gym:

"I'd rather sit at home sticking sharpened pencils in my eyes."

Great stuff. My Recommendation: BUY NOW

After starting this diet I have notice that I feel so much better. I have a ton of energy, I am happier and I do not need as much sleep. Our Bodies where designed to eat like this so it all makes sense.

If you stop eating all of the packaged, processed and chemically altered foods you realize that you do not need any of that stuff.

This book does a great job of explaining how to adapt to the Paleo Diet.

It comes highly recommended!

This book is a short and quick introduction into the Paleo lifestyle. The author doesn't take himself too seriously and recognizes that everyone is different. He repeats that this approach is what worked for him and that he is simply sharing his story. I would not use this book as the ultimate Paleo guide, but perhaps as a starting point. I encourage those who want to learn more to do their own research, as the author of this book missed a few key points that need to be mentioned when discussing the Paleo lifestyle.

First, the author speaks about how he lost weight while eating this way. Eating Paleo is NOT a diet for weight loss; some lose weight while eating this way, but it is about much more than losing weight. It is about taking care of your body and fueling it with high quality ingredients. Which brings me to my second point that the author skipped over: it is important to take into consideration the quality of the food that you are putting into your body. Paleo focuses on free range meats, grass fed beef, wild fish, and organic produce because of their high quality and nutrition content. Local and seasonal foods are also preferred. In regards to meat, he states "The leaner, the better, obviously." This may have worked for him as he was trying to lose weight, but many others who follow the Paleo approach do not limit their meats to only the lean cuts. Paleo does not avoid or demonize fat that is found in meats.

I recommend this book if you are interested in hearing one man's story about his experience with Paleo; if you want more information about the lifestyle, the guidelines, and the science behind it, then choose a different book.
